Editorial Reviews

Somewhat critical of contemporary global governance theory, the authors provide a brief history of this theory followed by a critique and an article questioning who is actually governed by global governance. Other articles analyze the influence of technology and modern market economies on global governance, and examine how political identity and civil society have been changed by global governance. Hewson is an associate at the York Centre for International and Security Studies, York U., Toronto; Sinclair teaches political science at the U. of Warwick, England. Annotation c.
